NB: “This was AGONY as there’s just way, way, way too much killer stuff on the site now, it’s kind of an overload situation to think about creating some kind of lifeboat of advocacy when there’s that much there, so this wouldn’t be our ‘TOP TEN OF ALL TIME’ but a kind of ‘TEN FOR TODAY’ type of thing — we love all ten of these things and hope others do too.”
